Webinar: To VLE and Beyond? Revisiting ABC Learning Design 15 May 2023

Webinar: To VLE and Beyond? Revisiting ABC Learning Design 15 May 2023

In recent years, the use of ABC Learning Design grown rapidly across Higher Education and other domains. Last November a major survey Approaches to curriculum and learning design across UK higher education reported; “The ABC model featured in 32 of 79 responses (40% of the open text comments mentioned using ABC or an adaptation of it)”.

One of reasons for this remarkable uptake is how easily ABC can be ‘localised’ to meet institutional needs, and the EU Erasmus project ABC to VLE project (2018-2020) even developed a toolkit to help this process.

But how exactly has ABC evolved and been modified since its launch in 2015? The webinar explored reflections, challenges and case studies from across the UK and Europe.
